      The good news is that both PB and MM roll.

            I hope PB continues to roll until it gets near 390 million (cap).

                Prob988, I hope PB continues to roll. I would be shocked if MM jackpot won again for third straight time.

                    Prob988, it looks like PB and MM won on consecutive days this time.

                        It's just pure luck ryanm that both MM and PB won on consecutive nights. I'll be shocked if MM and PB both win their jackpots on consecutive nights in their next draw.

                            I'm glad that MM rolled and start a new run. If PB rolls on next draw, I hope the PB run gets toward 390 million.
